I don't think it will be at AO22
Report n88uk September 12, 2021 11:21 PM BST
I'd be amazed if Medvedev doesn't win more grand slams. Djokovic really is only player even meant to be close to him on hard courts, and he's 34, while Medvedev is 25.

If Medvedev cleans up the hard court events from now on he'll have 21 Slams by US Open 2031.

He served for at least 2 sets Thiem won iirc, I think it might have been 3 though, it was some muggery like that I remember to some extent.

Umpire was very soft on the boo=birds in the crowd. Disgusting behaviour . Shouting and booing as

Report SamuelMertensBertens September 14, 2021 12:50 AM BST
She's never really been tbf, just the best player at the moment. Osaka has been the face lately, with Serena having been away so much. With those two currently out, there's no one star to put all your eggs in best in a basket with, so they're kind of doing the WWE thing, pushing the brand. Gauff they have hopes for. I think Garbine would be great as the face of WTA, but she doesn't have the results to back it up so that wouldn't really work. Barty has the results, but not the starpower to carry the brand.
